My Cultural Divide

Synopsis:  

Wonders aloud whether ethical consuming actually does anything good for the workers behind the machines. Because of family connections, director Faisal Lutchmedial is able to make his way into some of the worst factories in Bangladesh, where he talks frankly with the workers inside about their job and living conditions.

Accompanied by his ailing mother, Lutchmedial takes us on a very personal journey to bridge the gap between his heritage in Bangladesh and his life in Canada. He connects his politics with his humanity, and weaves together a story that is both thought provoking and touching.
